I need it to be SDR rec.709.
What is the correct input color space I should use?

It looks like P3 D65 1000nits master.
I think you need to set Input Color space to P3-D65 and gamma to ST2048-1000nits.
You probably want to use ColorSpaceTransform plugin.

You could use either the Color Space transform OFX or set the correct input and output using RCM or ACES. Input as Andrew described above and output Rec709.

You would need to either tone-map the transform or manually map to the more limited Rec709 range using the LGG or other controls.

I've just tried it on sample clip from web and you really need to do it scene by scene as "one" setting didn't work well for whole demo clip at all.
This is why big boys working on good automated (or semi automated) system for HDR->SDR conversion which works per scene.

Okay, will try it out. A little while ago I had a same issue with a UHD blu-ray as source. Looks like a similar issue. Used madVR to 'fix' it, but that's not an option in this case.
